The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that is not listed as a receiver. For example, a customer sends out an e-mail from their personal mail box to email@example.com and as far as they're involved, it is the only receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the email could be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, although the customer never intended the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are various reasons for using such forwarding. For example, if you've got several email addresses it is easy to forward each of them to a one email address, which will make keeping track of e-mails less complicated and will allow you to get e-mails and respond to them quickly. The feature may also be used if a number of individuals should receive a copy of an e mail message sent to a general mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Website Hosting
It is very easy to create forwarding for every e-mail address configured in a shared website hosting
account with us. This can be achieved either when you make a new email address in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any time in the future as the forwarding can be enabled and deactivated for any active email address with a few mouse clicks. You can also decide if a backup of the inbound emails will be kept on our servers, a pretty valuable option. This can be a fail-safe if the remote mailbox is not accessible for whatever cause, not mentioning that you will also have a backup of all your e-mails. When this feature is not enabled for a specific e-mail address on our end, an incoming message will be received and sent forward, so zero record of it will remain on the server. In case the remote mailbox is inaccessible for the moment, you'll lose this e-mail.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
For people with a semi-dedicated server
from us, you'll need only a couple of clicks inside the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the email addresses set up on our system to a third-party e-mail address. In the same section you will also have the ability to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the incoming emails are sent. It is possible to enable or disable a forwarding account at any moment and during the process you may also choose whether a backup copy of the e-mails has to be maintained on our servers or not. Even though this option is not a requirement, it is very valuable as you will have a backup copy of the messages on our end in case that anything happens with the third-party email address. Even if they have only a temporary problem, you run the risk of losing e-mail messages as the moment our server receives and forwards an e-mail message, nothing at all will be stored on our end if you haven’t selected a copy to be maintained.
